Hey guys. I need help formatting my cover.

The instruction reads, "The spine width is based on the number of pages in your book."


I used Vellum to generate the PDF interior and there are 70 pages. Does this mean my book has 70 pages? Or should I count page 1 and page 2 as "One Page" when calculating the spine since page 1 and 2 is technically on a one sheet of paper? Please help.

Thanks in advance.

Are all pictures done on a separate page from the actual text and then uploaded with the text when ready to submit for publishing?

On my account and anyone I work with, the permanent message for all browsers is that I have to load flash.  Well, guess, what?  All my browsers have flash loaded yet I get this message on all browsers and all the computers I have access to.  This behavior is abyssmal and insulting.  Is there any browser this works on?  I want to see a proof of my cover, but createspace is permanently blocking this ability.  Does anybody know of a work around.  I have tried installing flash on browsers but it refuses to install stating that its installation is not allowed.  Createspace still pretends I don't have flash installed on the browsers it is installed on (Chrome).  Why is Createspace deliberately blocking me from viewing my cover in any possible way?

Where to indicate "6th Edition"?

Posted by Waiki May 11, 2018

For the sixth edition of my textbook I am moving over to Createspace from a different custom publisher.  Should I add "6th Edition" to the title, put it in as a subtitle, or as a Volume number?  Thanks.

I tried to upload the description and bio of my book Sleep Apnea, Sleep Study, CPAP Machine many tims and I got this error code. only print printable words. I even tried creating a new book and I got the same results. I tried and tried and called several times to customer service and spoke to several people but nobody could help me until the last call. I was very frustrated and I couldn't believe this but the guy that I was talking to finally said something I could relate too. I always copy and past from my book onto the Create Space Template I have done this many times for several different books.  He said it was the formatting.

I went back to my document and cleared the formatting and then copy and pasted onto the template and it worked. Yes.

I've finished formatting my manuscript and although I have Createspace's 6x9 format I can't get the Table of Contents to line up properly.

Is there anyone out there that provides this service and is familiar with Createspace?

Thanks JArae111

Hi everyone,


I have just made my presentation and already have a question that seems to not be answered. What are the best fonts for Self-help book (science, esoterism). I have seen here and there the popular fonts like Minion Pro or Garamond but I think they are good for novels, science-fiction book and son on and so forth. It doesn't look serious enough on a self-help book, right ?


So here I come to you CreateSpace community Do you have any idea what fonts are "standards" for this kind of books ? I wrote mine with Time New Romans font (11.5) but I wonder if I can find a better one.


Thank you so much for your time!!
